Housekeeping Services

About Us

The Housekeeping Services Department is responsible for keeping JCPS schools and office buildings clean, healthy, safe, and attractive for students, employees, occupants, and visitors. Our department has standardized methods and operating procedures in place and selects appropriate equipment and supplies to perform district housekeeping tasks.

Requesting Substitute Housekeeping Personnel

Because substitute and floater custodians must be paid for by local school funding, custodians may not request their own substitutes. Only a principal or a principal's designee (usually the plant operator) may request a substitute or a floater custodian.

Equipment Repair Shop

The Housekeeping Services Equipment Repair Shop is responsible for the following:

  • Preventative maintenance and on-site repair of district housekeeping equipment

  • Emergency water flooding pick-up and cleaning

  • Cleaning assistance, when required, in conjunction with major construction and renovation projects

  • Annual project cleaning for district bus compounds

  • Safe provision of scaffolds and hydraulic lifts for use in maintaining lighting in gymnasiums, cafeterias, and stairwells

  • Safe provision of soot-a-matic boiler-cleaning equipment

  • Delivery of housekeeping loaner equipment
